WAW: Open Calls

  • Omaha Creative Institute 1419 South 13th Street, Suite 103 Omaha, NE, 68108 United States (map)

Looking to establish a more robust exhibition history? Open calls can be a great way to get shows under your belt, whether you're just starting to think about showing your work, or if you've been at it for a while. 

Join OCI Program Manager Peter Fankhauser to learn more about where to find open calls and the advantages and drawbacks of "pay to play" opportunities, juried shows, curated exhibitions, self organized shows, and artist registries.

WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each month is devoted to one topic. Expert community partners will lead a main learning session, followed by a hands-on, collaborative workshop later in the month. 

Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.

Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you. 

The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Iowa West Foundation.
